2 IDENTIFI Experience Matters IdentiFi wired-like Wi-Fi experience for the wireless world Extreme Networks IdentiFi is a purpose-built Wi-Fi solution that provides a wiredlike Wireless Local Area Networking (WLAN) experience for mobile and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) users. Extreme Networks IdentiFi includes access points, centralized management and controllers that provide the scalability, control and density required to meet the high user demand for simultaneous voice, HD video and data services. With IdentiFi, control and management are done centrally then pushed out to access points thereby distributing the intelligence out to the edge for unparalleled simplicity, optimization and security. IdentiFi provides predictable Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the business with an easy-to-deploy/manage solution for IT, and an exceptional quality experience for the mobile user. IdentiFi is future-proofed; adds, moves and changes can be done dynamically without making changes to the existing network infrastructure. The flexibility of IdentiFi insures that it will meet the demands of both small and large enterprises. IdentiFi, in combination with OneFabric, unifies the Wi-Fi and wired network providing consistent management, access and control from the network edge to the datacenter. IdentiFi benefits include: For the User: Use any device (BYOD) with consistent user experience for network availability, performance and reliability For the Business: Very high density, throughput and efficiency per AP and per venue, which means higher value and fulfilled customers Increased IT employee productivity enabled by automation and simplified holistic management IdentiFi Brochure 2

3 For IT Staff: Risk mitigation/security through integrated and distributed policy and intelligence based on multiple attributes and events Unified visibility and control through real time visibility into users and devices, means less time deploying, managing and troubleshooting Future-proofed automation and intelligence Purpose-built hardware with unparalleled reliability and software flexibility that dynamically adapts to fit within the customers design and needs: IdentiFi designed to support up to All traffic from the access points is sent to the controller 200 video clients per access point All traffic is handled at the access point Or a combination of both Density and Scalability IdentiFi wireless is optimized to meet the high expectations of BYOD and mobile users, accommodating device density as well as high-bandwidth per device. IdentiFi access points are custom-designed and utilize advanced RF management techniques between neighboring access points to distribute the client device load across multiple access points, as well as across multiple channels within each access point. Combining RF management techniques with Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, IdentiFi delivers high performance for critical applications while supporting large numbers of devices. Each access point is designed to support about 200 video clients per access point. Security IdentiFi strong encryption to protect data, authentication to validate users, policy to define user Strong security (802.11i), spectrum analysis, remediation, location, authentication, authorization and accounting are table stakes in today s missioncritical Wi-Fi networks. actions, WIPS/WIDS to reduce IdentiFi takes this one step further by providing role-based policy enforcement. exposure and comprehensive data Once a user/ device has authenticated a policy that has been centrally defined it is collection for forensics pushed to the IdentiFi access point and enforced locally; distributing intelligence to the network edge. A policy can provide very granular control over what that user/device has access to. The policy is not tied to a VLAN, it is associated with the user/device and will follow that user/device as they roam throughout the network. Additionally, a policy can change dynamically for the same user based on location, device type and/or time of day. IdentiFi Brochure 3

4 Once a policy is defined, it will operate seamlessly across both the Wi-Fi and wired network providing consistent security enforcement. IdentiFi analytics provides statistical data to meet compliance requirements, generate various reports, track users/devices and gather forensic information in the event of a breach. Operational Flexibility IdentiFi provides operational flexibility through automation, centralized visibility and control With distributed intelligence, IdentiFi control and management are maintained centrally and are implemented and enforced throughout the entire network. This provides operational flexibility to meet the needs of the evolving business. The IdentiFi solution simultaneously supports both centralized and distributed network architectures within a single SSID which improves overall wireless network performance, reduces the management complexity associated with multiple SSIDs and provides a cleaner RF environment. IdentiFi controllers can be hardware-based or as a virtualized solution that can be installed on an existing server and deployed in the data center or in the cloud. Additionally, access points can be configured to manage traffic locally, centralize it through a controller or do both simultaneously. This flexibility further reduces the Total Cost of Ownership. The IdentiFi solution centralizes data collection at the controller or, by adding Extreme Networks NetSight NMS data, collection can be aggregated from across the entire wireless and wired network providing detailed network analytics. Once installed and powered up, IdentiFi access points will locate a controller which will then push down the configuration. Once configured the access point can run independently of the controller even in the event that it loses connectivity with the controller. This provides a low touch installation reducing OPEX and providing network resiliency which decreases the possibility that a user cannot connect. Radar RF Management, Analysis and Control IdentiFi Radar is RF management and spectrum analysis that is built into the solution and is available with all 3700 series access points. IDENTIFI RADAR RF MANAGEMENT INCLUDES: Radar RF Security - All IdentiFi 3700 series of access points support WIPS/ WIDS from the start. The 3705, 3710, 3765 and 3767 access points provide inchannel scanning for the channels that are actively being used. IdentiFi Radar RF Management, available with all 3700 series access points The 3725 access point takes this one step further using a third radio to provide dedicated full time scanning across all channels while the other two radios provide the client connectivity. This has the huge benefit of eliminating the necessity of dedicating access points for RF management, saving both deployment time and money. Radar RF Fingerprinting - The 3700 series access points provide hardware-based spectrum fingerprinting which will detect and identify noise or interference on the channel from other RF emitting devices, such as microwave, Bluetooth, video bridges, etc. Once interference is detected an event can be triggered to notify the administrator and client connections can automatically be redirected to another interference free channel. Again, IdentiFi is always in place to maintain a quality user experience. IdentiFi Brochure 4

5 Radar Radio Management - Dynamic Radio Management (DRM) operates independently on each radio, automatically adjusting radio power output and channel selection to accommodate changing RF environments to maintain a quality user experience. Resiliency is built into the IdentiFi solution uninterrupted client connectivity should failures occur Radar Performance - Airtime fairness allows faster n clients to have the same amount of airtime as slower a/b/g clients. This means that faster client connections are not penalized by slower performing clients and can transfer greater levels of data in the same timeframe, also extending battery life. Client session load balancing distributes client traffic across radios and the access point to insure that a single radio or channel is not overloaded while others go unused, while band steering distributes traffic across the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz spectrums. Combined, these two capabilities maximize the efficiency and throughput that the access point can provide. Lastly, band preference forces clients that support both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz spectrum to the faster and cleaner 5Ghz spectrum. Radar Location Aware - Easily and quickly locate a user, device or asset using IdentiFi management tools. A network administrator can visually locate a device, user or asset down to the access point and/or switch port. This service does not require additional hardware or software. For Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) Extreme Networks partners with industry leaders in location services. High Availability The IdentiFi solution is designed to provide the same level of availability that businesses have come to expect from the wired network. Both virtual and physical controllers have resiliency built in from the start, there is no additional software to add or purchase. Running as active-active pairs if a controller happens to fail, the other controller is able to take over the full load while maintaining access point connectivity. If a failover occurs it is within milliseconds access points will continue running without interruption to existing or new client connections. Additionally, if there is a WAN failure between the IdentiFi access points and the controllers, the access points will continue running without interruption to existing or new client connections. In the unlikely event of an access point failure, neighboring IdentiFi access points will automatically pick up the connections from the failed access point while maintaining user connectivity. Purpose-Built Hardware Not all Wi-Fi solutions are created equal. Many products are built using off-theshelf reference designs. These are not enterprise-grade products; they are basically the equivalent of a consumer-grade product. IdentiFi access points are purposebuilt to meet the security, reliability, density and availability required by IT in order IdentiFi Brochure 5

6 to support the high on-demand traffic of mobile and BYOD users. IdentiFi access points are easy to deploy, less costly than wired solutions and deliver wire-like capabilities for a great user experience. IdentiFi access points for the all-wireless office IdentiFi access points will meet the demands of today and tomorrow. Radios, CPU, memory and antennas have been designed to operate at full power, run cooler and provide the cleanest signal of any access point available today. Bonjour and Multicast Containment The BYOD movement has brought a proliferation of smart mobile devices into the enterprise environment. While these consumer devices have enabled employees to become more mobile and productive, they have also added to the burden on the IT staff in terms of onboarding, securing and managing access to applications. As an example Apple s Bonjour is a zero configuration network or Zeroconf protocol used by Apple devices to enable automatic and easy discovery of computers, devices and services on flat IP networks. Bonjour (and other multicast services like Microsoft s UPnP and LLMNR) uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. While this is great for consumers and small networks, it can cause numerous issues for larger enterprise networks. Bonjour is a very chatty protocol and can introduce heavy amounts of traffic onto the network. Additionally, Bonjour (and other multicast services) is not routable therefore the advertisements for services cannot go beyond the local subnet. IdentiFi allows you to control your Bonjour and other multicast traffic Extreme Networks IdentiFi is designed to easily, securely and efficiently manage all devices, including finding and accessing network-attached devices on different subnets, using policy-based end user privileges and access. Other unique capabilities that IdentiFi offers to help control and manage multicast traffic include: Multicast to unicast translation higher bandwidth clients are not penalized by the presence of lower bandwidth clients. With multicast to unicast translation the access point receives the multicast data and then converts it to multiple unicast streams sent to each client at the speeds they are connected at. Policy-based multicast filtering at the access point this allows the administrators to block or filter multicast traffic at the access edge without requiring the controller to make these decisions saving bandwidth resources. Classification and containment of multicast traffic to a separate, multicast-only VLAN ensures that Bonjour services are contained within physical or logical domains via integration with Extreme Networks S and K Series and Mobile IAM. IdentiFi offers complete visibility and control over the wireless network via the cloud These IdentiFi multicast features allow IT to take control of multicast traffic on the network. Containing and controlling multicast traffic allows IT to maximize network performance while providing a consistent experience for clients. Wireless Cloud Services IdentiFi access points can be located remotely while IdentiFi controllers can be centrally-located.this distributes data decisions and data handling, while centralizing management and control. The IdentiFi controllers can be centrally-located on premise at the enterprise or in the cloud as a managed service offering. Both of these approaches provide IdentiFi Brochure 6

7 Quality User Experience centralized control over IdentiFi access points via the cloud, thus reducing the cost and complexity associated with locating dedicated controllers at every location. IdentiFi provides wire-rate performance to ensure that today s bandwidth-intensive and latency-sensitive business applications are reliably delivered in a consistent manner to mobile and BYOD users. Robust IdentiFi QoS features: Utilizes hardware-based QoS queues and per client queuing to provide tollquality voice and real-time HD video support for today s bandwidth intensive, latency-sensitive business applications IdentiFi provides a quality user experience for all forms of real-time traffic (HD video and voice) with minimal latency and jitter with industry leading throughput of 75,000 pps IdentiFi is certified with leading Voice over Wireless handset vendors, such as Ascom, Ploycom, Vocera and Siemens IdentiFi provides a quality user experience for bandwidth-intensive, low-latency voice and HD Video applications IdentiFi Brochure 7
